NSW Health issues public health alert for a gym in Zetland and a venue in Sydney's city centre

The Covid-19 alert is for Virgin Gym Zetland and City Tattersalls Fitness Centre in Sydney's centre

Update 29 August 2020

Sydney city centre

City Tattersalls Fitness Centre

Anyone who attended City Tattersalls Fitness Centre on the following dates and times are considered to be close contacts and must immediately get tested for COVID-19, and self-isolate for 14 days since their last visit:

  • Wednesday 19 August between from 8am to 2pm
  • Friday 21 August between 8am and 2pm, including Aqua Aerobics from 10am to 10:45am, Stretch Class from 11am to 11:50am and the Pump Class from 12:15pm to 1pm
  • Sunday 23 August between 8am and 2pm
  • Monday 24 August between 8am and 2pm
  • Tuesday 25 August between 8am and 2pm

Members who attended the gym on the above dates but outside those times should be on the alert for symptoms and get tested and self-isolate if symptoms do develop.

A previously reported case attended one of the gaming areas of City Tattersalls on 24 August. Others who were in the gaming areas on this day must monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if even the mildest symptoms develop.

NSW Health is now investigating whether the CBD cluster originated in the City Tattersalls Club and then spread to workplaces in the city and to households across Sydney and the Central Coast. To assist in identifying earlier and possible undiagnosed cases, NSW Health is asking anyone who attended the City Tattersalls Club between 4 August 2020 and 18 August 2020 to get tested for Covid-19 and isolate until a negative test result is received.

Zetland

Virgin Active Zetland

If you attended the Active Dance class Monday 24 August at 7:40pm at Virgin Gym Zetland you are considered a close contact. You should get tested and isolate at home for 14 days. Other people who attended this gym on that day between 7:30 and 10pm should get tested even if they have even the mildest symptoms.
